I worked at Belcan Corporation

Pros

Great Flex Time. Core hours between 9am and 3pm. Once you have completed your task or 40 hours you can leave by 3 on fridays. Competent employees. Great work environment.

Cons

Only 6 paid holidays. Projects/Task are at risk of being cut by clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership needs to have a plan in place to reduce employee downtime, i.e training on new software, industry studies and cross training into new positions.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Experienced technical team leaders manage smaller teams of younger qualified members teaching and acting as coaches throughout the work process.

    Cons

    Younger members of the team may have to work for several years to gain the experience needed to qualify as a technical lead. This is because of the OEM requirement that all leaders hold the credentials necessary to lead a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and help grow the customer base at key locations.

    Decent job, good for entry level but not the best for long term

    I have been working at Belcan Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good starting pay for entry level
    -Decent benefits (health, dental, vision, 401k, insurance etc.)
    -Flexible work schedule (variable arrival time and working from home occasionally)
    -OK training culture, some tuition reimbursement is provided if requested

    I give Belcan credit for being a decent place to work; for the most part everyone has a pretty positive and laid back attitude and as long as you are willing to come to work everyday and put in some good effort managers will do their best to support you.

    Cons

    -No pay growth (no raises since I've been with the company)
    -Below average paid holidays (only 6 vs. a more traditional 9 or 10), this can lead to burnout especially if you are on a tough or fast paced project and need some recuperation time.
    -Can be unstable for long term employment, Belcan provides contract engineers/services to large companies and in the case of a downturn Belcan people will be cut/laid off first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Consider giving employees a few more days off per year, maybe 2 or 3 floating holidays, burnout can be an issue without some extra time off.
    -Give raises and bonuses, especially when employees are very busy and have added projects and stress. It's very hard for people to continue working hard if there is no incentive in place.
